Easily attach a variety of accessories to the front of your vehicle with this corrosion-resistant trailer hitch receiver. Perfect for winches, spare tire carriers and more.


I went with this hitch since I have an after market front bumper. I wasn’t sure if it was going to fit but since this hitch was a bolted connection it gave me 2 options to have a chance it would fit. One I received the package the box was damaged but all the hardware had been taken to the hitch, so everything was there. I installed the hitch by myself and took me about 2 hours but that was due to the aftermarket bumper and dealing with that hardware at the same time otherwise the install went smooth. Tha last phot is to show this hitch worked with this bumper.


Mounted this hitch about a year ago and really like it. We pull a fifth wheel camper so this affords us the ability to haul our bikes or kayaks(tall T stand) up front. Was easy to install and looks good to boot.



We love it! Great solution.


Great Front Hitch.
Installed in the
upper position so I have plenty of ground clearance. Everything needed to install was supplied, they even supplied a very handy wire snake tool for installing the bolts in the frame, this made the install easy.



The hitch works great! I use it for pushing my camper into its tight parking spot next to my garage, wouldn’t be able to get it there with out it. Also use it to put a bike rack on the front of the truck when pulling the camper.

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Very Pleased with this Front Mount Hitch I installed on my 2016 F250 Super Duty.

EVERYTHING fit prefect and installation was straight forward.

I did this install myself (1 person), If you take your time, work smart, it is very doable for anyone that can turn wrenches.

Once the side brackets were bolted to the frame, I used a floor Jack to lift the roll & hitch into place. This makes it an easy 1 person job.

I wanted the Hitch in the "upper" position and a nice clean look, so instead of just notching the air dam as is suggested, I took my time and cut a square that allowed the hitch to pass thru from behind. The end result is an install that looks like it was designed to be there.

Also I placed painters tape on the air dam so I could use a black sharpie to mark up my opening and easily redo if needed. And yes I redid it a few times till I was satisfied with the planned location.

Lastly i was able to drill a hole in all 4 corners of my desired opening and then used a utility knife with a new blade to cut out the opening. Took my time and the results were worth the effort. I have and could have used a rotary tool, yet feel I have better control with a sharp knife.

Suggest watching the On-Line Install Video prior to getting started.
2012 install Video was the exact procedure for my 2016.

Working alone with no air tools, planning out the air dam opening location, and just taking my time, it took about 2.5 hours to complete the install......

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

This item is everything it's claimed to be. Very well designed, great finish and perfect fit. Installation is easy (for one person) however I recommend watching the installation video for the "Tech Tips" which proved very useful. In the video the truck is on a lift which is ideal, however when working on the ground, space is limited when using a long handle torque wrench.
A couple additional tips I found useful are:
First, drive onto ramps for the extra clearance when using the torque wrench.
When re-using the factory nuts and bolts (18-mm in used front two holes of frame) use 2 of the supplied fishing wires together on the bolts; this keeps them from falling away from the frame while lining them up.
Use an 18-mm ratcheted box wrench to remove the inner bolts on the passenger side of the frame when removing factory tie-down brackets
For the receiver extending thru the air dam I wanted it to extend thru a hole and not cut out a notch for a factory look. I covered the area with blue painters tape. I measured up from the bottom 4" and marked the tape; took a straight edge and marked tape up from the sides of the receiver tube to mark a 3" square.
Next I outlined the 3" square with green painters tape to outline the cut-out area. I used a sharp utility knife to make the cut. Take your time and it cuts very easily. (save the cutout plastic)
After installing receiver you can trim the saved cutout to fill in any opening at the bottom. I used with JB Weld to glue the trimmed piece back into place.
Install a receiver cover for a clean finished look.
All this took 2.5 hours without any extra hands.

2014 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

2014 F-250 FX4. Ordered this hitch on Friday, and received it on Tuesday. Instructions were simple, it took less that 2 hours to install. It made backing my boat around a corner and into my carport easier than I had hoped. I shoulda installed a front-end hitch a long time ago. My initial concern was losing ground clearance, but the brackets only extend below the air dam by about 1/2".

2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty

This fit perfect and e-trailer’s video was easy to follow for the install. Did it myself in a couple hours. Just used a block of wood to help hold up the center section when I was installing it. Installed in the higher position so had to cut a hole in the plastic trim. 2011 f350 crew cab 4x4.


This hitch fit my truck perfectly and was easy to install. I use it for a front mounted e-bike rack and have no complaints.


Great fit. Easy installation. I use it all the time for winch and Motorcycle hitch carrier.


Great product, good installation vieo, perfect fit!

2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Just installed the Curt front hitch on my 2015 F250 4x4. Easy as pie took about an hour everything fit perfect 100% satisfied.

2014 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Exactly what we needed. I ordered this with a short timeline before we were headed out on a big family road trip with our ebikes. We used this to hold the Hollywood Ebike rack in front of our F350. Perfect Fit! This item just barely made it and George J at e trailer made it happen! Thank you from my whole family! This was straight forward to install, the videos are what make it so! and the unit is strong and compact. You almost don't know its there when not in use, exactly as I hoped. The customer service was amazing! I WILL BE BACK to buy from this company,(as I have many times before) they know what it means to take care of a customer. Thank you!

2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Fit my 2015 Ford F350 perfect. Holds my bike rack so the bikes can go with me when the slide -in camper is on the truck. Mounted with the high mount and cut the cowling for the hitch to fit through. Had to work at tightening the nuts with the torque wrench in the limited work area under the truck. This is the second truck I have put a front receiver hitch on.



Did you have to remove the air dam? I have a 2015 f250 2wd.Looks like the Curt mounts lower than the Reese model.Thanks!

Dave C.


I did not remove anything. My truck is 4WD which might make a difference. I mounted the hitch against the front cowling and cut it out with the hitch pressing against the plastic cowling, afterword. I didnt start out to do that, it just seemed to work after tightening the bolts enough to see where the hole was going to be.


My Curt front mount hitch arrived today and as expected, it is build solid. I’m waiting on weather to install but from the instructions installation seems to be very straight forward as are all the products I buy from etrailer. I value the instructional videos and help from their account managers as much as I do their products.

2014 Ford F-350 Super Duty

So far, so good. Very easy to install. My buddy and I did it in under one hour. Put it in the lower position on my F350 and didn’t need to cut the air dam. Using it to carry my Honda Trail 110 when camping in the 5th wheel. Shipping was supposed to take about 7 days. Arrived in 3 days!!! Super happy with that.

2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty

The C31018 front hitch for my Ford F-250 fit perfectly. The instructions were clear and brief and the hitch went on without a HITCH. I did not have to remove the front fascia whchi saved me sometime and avoided damaging the mounting hardare Unfortunately the installation of the Curt spare tire carrier C31006 did not meet my satisfaction at all. I intended to mount a bran new spare tire with the Alclad finished and King Ranch Logo but could not due to the improper design for my Ford F-250. I ended up using my steel spare tire with the inward side out and the addition of self fabricated would spacer. I had to settle for an ugly appearing spare tire that hangs out front at an awful angle. I expected that the Cure Spare tire mount would be designed to Fit.. Included are a few picture of what I hoped to have and what I ended up with. If you have a spacer available to mount my original chrome clad spare tire with the clad side facing forward, I would very much getting some information on that device. The poor rating is for the spare tire mount. The front hithc was excellent.

2012 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Fast delivery

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Can’t beat the Curt’s brand, always top of the line and made in the USA putting Americans to work. Sure it a few dollars more but no comparison to the cheaper China crap. Which do you want to put your trailer or anything else behind or in front of your truck? Comes with grade 8 bolts and detailed instructions. Took about a hour to put on and I didn’t pull out the impact, hardest part is cutting the plastic front air dam so it looks good and not like a 3 year old did it - just caulk around it with black adhesive silicone to get a nice look when your done. (2016 f250 perfect fit)



It’s still looking fantastic, does the job


Appears to be good quality. Hitch came with hardware to mount below air dam. If I were to do it again I’d mount it higher and cut the air dam.

2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Easy to mount. It my wife and me less than an hour to install it in the driveway with hand tools.

2012 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

very easy to install, directions were clear and accurate. Gives just the proper amount of clearance to slide my 9,000 lb winch into place. ground clearance reduction is very minimal. i didn't want to trim my front fascia to gain the extra inches so mounting it in the lower space made the install much easier and quicker. looks like a factory installed piece.

Ed G.


Which hitch has the most ground clearance the Curt or the Draw-Tite?

Etrailer Expert

Rachael H.


In general the vehicle specific hitches mount in approximately the same location for both brands. Usually this is not the lowest point on the vehicle, so it typically does not decrease the overall ground clearance of the vehicle. Many times the transfer cases, oil pans, or suspension component are lower on the vehicle than the front mount hitch. However, depending on what accessories are mounted in the hitch, the ground clearance can be decreased. If this is a concern for you, you might consider accesories that install in the hitch with a rise in the shank if possible. Also be aware of the extended distance in front of the vehicle the accessories may be, and this may also affect your angle of approach on inclines.


Love it. Perfect fit and easy to install.

We haul a 41' fith wheel around and have a pair of electric bikes. Initially we carried the bikes on the back of the 5th wheel, but they bounced badly as we drove down the highway. The bikes are 70 lbs each plus the carrier and the trailer hitch was only rated for 150 lbs.

The front end receiver is rated at 300 lbs and our bikes ride beautifully. I added an 8" receiver extender so I could easily remove our bike carrier for normal city driving.


Easy instructions and easy to install. End result is amazing we put one of our pretty sizable Ebikes on the front and one on the back

2013 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Curt Front Hitch- Has it already been one year? What a great performance. Installed this front hitch on my F350 superduty to mount a Yakima bike rack up front- I've got a truck camper on the rig that precludes use of rear hitch for adding racks.

Solid product- easy to install. Definitly need help lifting in place to bolt down but directions and assembly are straight forward. I've now purchased multiple items from and have loved the customer service and highly recommend them to everyone who asks. Quality outfit that delivers.


I have this rack mounted on the front of my Ford F-350. Could not ask for a better rack. Bikes are easy to load and unload. They have remain very secure after thousands of miles of travel.

  • Front Mount Hitch Receiver for a 2015 Ford F-350 4x4
    There are bound to be some slight differences amongst the year vehicles that Curt front receiver # C31018 fits. The truck in the video, linked for reference, is a 2012 so there have been some design changes between then and the 2015 models. But the hitch does fit the 2015 Ford F-350 4x4s. Another option is Draw-Tite hitch # 65049. It has a different design than the Curt hitch. You can compare the installations because I have linked a video showing how the Draw-Tite hitch installs as well....

  • Detail K2 Snowplow for 2" Hitches K2AVAL8422. Will This Work On A Lifted Truck?
    In order to use the Detail K2 Snowplow # K2AVAL8422, your front hitch must be between 13"-18" from the ground, when measured from the bottom of the receiver opening to the ground. We installed the Curt front hitch # C31018 on a 2012 F250 where everything was stock, and the front hitch was at about 15-1/2". So with a 6" lift and big tires, this snow plow would likely not be effective. You can always measure your hitch to be sure, but your lifted truck will likely not be able to be used...

  • Correct Front Mounted Receiver for Moving 788 lb Tongue Weight Trailer With 2015 Ford F-350
    Tongue weight and vertical load both refer to the maximum amount of downward force a hitch can safely withstand. This capacity is expressed as tongue weight capacity when speaking of a rear hitch or vertical load limit when discussing a front mounted receiver. Different terms for the same exact thing, in other words.

Otherwise what I recommend is to use # D210 which has a receiver and ball mount platform allowing you to tow the trailer and carrier a bike rack with bikes.

The Curt # C31018 and Draw-Tite # 65049 would both install so the receiver tube sits below the bumper which reduces ground clearance, approach angle and would require that the front fascia/air dam be trimmed, so even though it won't bolt to the tow hook mounts, the EcoHitch option would...

  • Can a Front Mount Trailer Hitch be Used to Carry Bikes
    You can use a front mount hitch such as # C31018 for a bike carrier. But there are a few things you will need to be aware of. When the bikes are loaded on the carrier they can reduce driver visibility and somewhat restrict airflow to the motor. In some cases they can also block the front lights on the vehicle. Reduced visibility and airflow to the motor probably will not be an issue in most cases. But if the lights are blocked you would have to remove the wheels on the bikes.
